Figuring it out, one crazy day at a time.

Have yourself a merry little… November 10, 2010

The Thursday before Halloween, Jake and I took the kids to a local farm to visit their pumpkin patch and other fall-ish activities. The grocery store had discounted tickets, so we stopped there first. While Jake waited in line, I wandered around with the kids, and realized that I was hearing Christmas music. Christmas. Music. On October 28th. Really?

After I got done grumbling about how they might as well just leave the holiday stuff up all year and it just goes out earlier and earlier blahblahblah, I got The Feeling. The Feeling that includes the quick mental count of how many days we have until Christmas-how many shopping days, and how many mailing days until the cards have to go out so they’re actually Christmas card and not Happy Cinco de Mayo cards, the sudden Feeling of panic and rush, even though it was ONLY OCTOBER 28th PEOPLE.

So. First order of business to usher in the holiday season will be cards. I really don’t want to do the whole buy-a-box-of-generic-cards-and-hope-no-one-notices.  I discovered that Bloggers can get 50 free holiday cards from Shutterfly just by talking about how Bloggers get 50 free holiday cards from Shutterfly… sign up .

The plan will be to try to get my kids to cooperate and whip up some of these babies.

Or perhaps New Year’s cards might be more realistic if that’s the kind of cooperation that I can expect…

This is more like it…
